Linked Data as a step to realization of Semantic Web vision consists of a set of best practices for publishing and connecting structured data on the Web. These best practices have been adopted by an increasing number of data providers over the past years, leading to the creation of a global data space that contains many billions of assertions – the Web of Linked Data. Recently, Linked Data has received attention in domains such as libraries, e-government, e-commerce, search, news providers, e-learning and other data integration applications. Nonetheless, looking at the current status of Linked Data on Persian Web space, adoption has been very limited and data is trapped in many Persian Websites without allowing the integration and reasoning. One reason for this, is the lack of infrastructure and NLP tools to deal with the specific requirements of Persian data. This talk will introduce the Linked (Open) Data principles, its lifecycle and the required steps towards its realization on Persian Web data space.
